Talented SYKESers took center stage in SYKES Cebu’s Mid-Year celebration last July 19. Dubbed as “SYKES Idol”, which is patterned after the name of a popular reality singing competition, the program showcased the best of the best of Cebuano talents.
Before the grand showdown, SYKES held a company-wide audition that is open to all SYKES Cebu employees. The top contestant from each business unit are then chosen to represent their group in the live championship round.
The top six SYKES Idol competitors who made it to the finals were June Lagnason of Financials, Mildred Escuadro of Emerging Market, Aljun Canoneo of KVBU, Veronica Hiramis of R2BU, Brixter Eyo of Telco, and Jason Rico of SSG&A. The finalists were given the chance to train with a renowned vocal coach to further develop their talents. The finalists rehearsed for weeks prior to showcasing their singing prowess in front of the whole SYKES Cebu community.
